STEM week proved a great success at Echline Primary!  The P4/5 assembly gave a fantastic introduction into STEM week and all children did so well in explaining it to the whole school.

During STEM week we had some exciting workshops and visitors.  In P4-P5, we had Denise from Napier University who spoke to us about 3D printing and we even got to use the 3D pens to create our own. She also did workshops in P6-7 about coding.

We also had John Renwick from ESP Scotland (also a parent) who kindly came in to show children from P4-7 the immersive reality kit. Which was great fun!

David Wylie from Leonardo airborne safe systems came into P1 to speak to them about helicopters.

There were many more STEM activities that happened around the school  involving building marshmallow towers and hoop gliders.

I’m sure everyone had a fantastic week learning about STEM!

On the last Thursday before the February break, P2, P2/3 and P3 got together to celebrate all the things we’ve learned about Scotland so far.

We got to watch some Highland dancing.

Miss Young read out the Address to a Haggis, lots of people tried meat haggis and vegetarian haggis for the first time!

The haggis was served with some yummy peppery oatcakes made by P2.

Whilst P2/3 made some delicious shortbread for us to snack on.

And P3 celebrated Pancake Day early and made some fluffy pancakes for us to enjoy.

We even listened to traditional bagpipe music and showed off our ceilidh dancing skills! Sadly Miss Bennett’s camera ran out of battery at this point but the dancing continued for a while!

We all had great fun 🙂

Welcome back P1B

All of the adults in the class would like to thank you all for your lovely gifts, cards and good wishes before the holidays.

We’ve been enjoying being back, getting started with this term’s work.  You should have received new maths home learning and new sounds (sh and ch) and tricky words today.
